|Obscure 1950s Singers Sing On TV for You - Matthew Paul Argall|
A collection of 1950s television clips (edited together by me!), featuring singers that Prince Vegeta hasn't heard of.

Some of them were obscure then and obscure now. Some of them don't matter in the slightest. But all of them are very talented! Over 20 singers, with clips from 14 different television series.

|''Perry Presents'' - 11 July 1959|
An episode of summer replacement series "Perry Presents", broadcast on NBC. Perry does not appear in this show, but it DOES feature Tony Bennett, Gloria DeHaven and The Four Lads. If you do not enjoy these performers, then avoid this upload, as the show is focused on these 3 acts. Commercials intact (for RCA, nylon tyres, and Sunbeam). WARNING: There is a VERY annoying time-code on this copy. It's very annoying and gets in the way...
